Why does my camera not capture any picture? Whichever mode I use, it does not capture any picture regardless of how many times I click the button.

Flash flicker is the camera trying to get enough light to focus, It occurs when you press the shutter release part of the way down.
Try the same thing outside, ensure you press the shutter real ease all the way down. If it still does not fire, switch the lens to manual focus (sliding switch on the side of the lens, move from A to M) If the camera shoot then, the camera is struggling to auto focus.

I have a sony cybershot DSC-P200. I am having problems with the flash. Sometimes it works and sometimes it goes off but the picture is black or only partially lit. Can you help?


I suggest you to set the Flash to Forced Flash ON by pressing the UP ARROW button on the Camera while capturing the images. This will enable the flash settings in the Camera to ON which will help you to capture all the images with the flash on.

Good Luck!!
